STYLE NO. 8085 : Iron Ranger

The rugged 6-inch 8085 Iron Ranger features premium Copper Rough & Tough leather, chrome hardware, speed hooks, Goodyear welt construction, triple stitched quality, plus a durable Vibram® 430 Mini-lug sole for grip while maintaining the classic Iron Ranger construction and silhouette.

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE

The early history of iron mining on Minnesota’s Mesabi Range is intertwined with that of Red Wing Shoe Company. The miners needed tough but comfortable boots that could stand up to the long days and tough conditions a northern Minnesota mine pit presented. Red Wing responded with a boot made of thick leather with an oil resisting outer sole, speed lacing hooks, and a comfortable cork midsole. The defining characteristic of these boots though, was their double layered toe, capped to protect the miner’s feet from injury as they labored with hand tools and heavy machinery. That boot is still made today, the fittingly named Iron Ranger, and it represents not only Red Wing’s commitment to making boots for working men and women but also its Minnesota origins.

Oil-Tanned leather is a very durable and vivid leather. Oil-Tanned leather is a very durable and vivid leather.

Oil-Tanned Leather

S.B. Foot Tanning Co. is best known for Oil-Tanned leather which is used to build a variety of timeless Red Wing styles. This leather is water, stain and perspiration resistant, and has a more natural look and feel because less finishing materials have been applied, allowing its natural beauty to shine through. Oil-Tanned leather is exceptionally durable and has been used to build countless work boots throughout Red Wing’s 110+ year history.

STYLE NO. 8085 : Iron Ranger

A new pair of Red Wing Heritage boots should fit comfortably tight on your foot, with enough room to freely wiggle your toes. Over time, the full grain leather upper, leather footboard and cork midsole mold to your feet, creating an enduring and customized fit over time with each wear.


The 8085 is built using the No. 8 Last:

  • Many customers buy Red Wing Heritage footwear 1/2 size smaller than their normal size
  • Trying on Red Wing Heritage footwear in a store is recommended to get the perfect fit
  • Features a bump toe for more room up-front
  • Fits a variety of foot shapes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iron ranger 8111 I’ve been looking at these boots for a year wearing other brands and them tearing up or stretching too far or not having replaceable insoles and finally I gave in. Best boot decision I’ve ever made. I’m on my feet for 14 hrs a day on concrete working my tail off. These boots with the custom fit insole has been much or comfortable than any other boot or tennis shoe I’ve owned. They literally just get better. Because of my care for leather once a week I clean, polish and get ready for another week. These guys Camembert through big time. I’ve got back problems, knee problems, foot problems, the works. A week after owning these the pain left. So yeh.....go buy the boot anabolic enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! This was my first pair of Red Wings. Always wanted a pair but the price tag would scare me off. Finally decided to take the plunge and am very happy! They're breaking in fast without any comfort issues and look great. I had to go a full size smaller than my typical tennis shoe size so for your first pair it's a good idea to go into a RW store and try on a few sizes and styles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 8 Years and still going! I bought my first pair of these in 2010. After spending half the price for other brands to crap out after a year or two, I decided to get a pair of Red Wings to hopefully last at least 3 years. Here I am 8 years later and they are going GREAT. I wear them 4-5 days out of the week, are are easily the most comfortable shoe/boot I’ve ever worn. They’ve stood the test of time, the elements (mud, oil, glue, wet concrete, and even once a brief interaction with a fire pit), I’ve only replaced the laces TWICE, and generally these are just the best. I’m only planning to replace this pair with another pair of Iron Rangers, and only because cosmetically they are getting tired. But that aside, still as comfortable as ever...even after 8-13 hours on my feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They get better and better with every wear! I picked the 8111's up from my Local Red Wing shoe store. Had my feet measured for size and width. I tried on two different sizes and decided to go with a 10 D (half size down from my sneaker size). They have broken in nicely over the past month. Didnt have a problem with blisters or spots that pinch. A little discomfort in the foot bed, until it molded to my feet. It pays off to go to a Red Wing store and get fitted. I also have a pair of 1907's which is also a great comfortable boot, I just wanted something I can polish and dress up in if I needed too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Amazing boot! I have had my pair of iron rangers for about 4 maybe even 5 years now. Bottom line is, I've had them so long I don't even remember when I exactly got them. All I know is I have worn these things through absolutely anything and everything! I've worn them when I do landscaping in the summer when I'm out of school. I clean them up and wear them on the weekends. I wear them when I go shooting in the field. I wear these bad boys everywhere! I've had them resoled a couple of times and plan on wearing them until I can no longer! I recommend redwing boots to everyone I know. I just read the one review where the guy gave them one star and said most of the other reviews on here are from when people first get them. Well buddy here's a review from somebody that's had them for five years and they're still going strong as ever. They're definitely showing their age though but come on. They're five years old

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love!!! I went to the store to order mini lug sole. None in stock. Just cork nitrile. Redwing Store sent the wrong model. No mini lug. Then I found factory seconds. Never looked back. Own 5 pairs of these wicked boots. Don't over oil. Smith's dressing. Or black rock leather n rich. Went full size down naturally.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fashion boot, not Work/hiking/camping Great for around the town or office wear. They won't hold up in harder conditions. not a work boot. Speed hooks are thin and cheap and eventually break off. Toes wore out on mine after 2 years. Redwing wouldn't repair so I paid a local guy to replace the toes and tread. I still wear em, good summer boot, but terrible in the cold or wet. Now they're too beat up to be a fashion boot, but not durable enough for most work I do in my free time. I wear em hiking sometimes. They run big, order a full size smaller than you usually do. Take about a month to break in properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This boot is awesome! Hey start off the review by saying I’m a size 13 with a reasonably wide foot in most sneaker or boots I get. With the iron ranger I went a full size down with standard width and it fits PERFECTLY. Every time I wear these boots they feel better and better. The break in period takes awhile but isn’t half as strenuous as most reviews make it out to be. I have very very sensitive feet and am even prone to getting ingrown toe nails but the iron ranger has been nothing but I pleasure. I started off wearing them a couple hours at a time and by the third day I was wearing all day no problems! I love the boots and can’t wait to continue my journey with them!
